10:02 pm
a new week with some damaging details about the job outlook in this country as our economy continues to create jobs at an alarmingly slow pace and florida's unemployment remains higher than the national average at 8.8%, trying to switch the focus to medicare, and might be a slippery slope. today the the president went after the republican nominees over medicare though. and governor romney and congressman ryan, as we know it. the romney team quickly coming out with this response saying in a statement. only one candidate in this race has robbed today's medicare of 716 billion dollars to pay for barack obama care, barack obama. he has done nothing to reform medicare for the long haul and prevent it from going bankrupt, end quote. the latest back and forth hours ago with the president campaigning in florida. >> hear about their plan for medicare, would bankrupt medicare, our plan strengthens medicare. no american should have to spend their golden years at
10:03 pm
the mercy of insurance companies. >> more on the president's claims in a moment, but first, we know at this hour, governor romney is at his headquarters in boston where we're told he's preparing for the first presidential debate. now, less than a month away. our steve centanni kicks off the political coverage from washington on this and governor romney was not on the campaign trail today, but on one of the sunday talk shows. >> that's right, it was a pre-taped interview this morning on meet the press and the governor took the the opportunity during that interview to outline just what parts of the new health care law he would keep if he's elected president. >> i'm not getting rid of all of health care reform, of course, there are a number of things that i like in health care reform that i'm going to put in place, one is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage, two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their family unto whatever age they might like. >> and romney also went to church with his family today and spent several hours preparing for those all important presidential debates
10:04 pm
coming up in october, harris. >> harris: i know that governor romney's running mate, congressman ryan making news today. what did he have to say? >> yeah, ryan defended his medicare plan which the democrats claim would end medicare as we know it and call for a premium support system that would give seniors a mixed amount to help them buy health insurance on the open market or stay with the current plan. and he said, some things have to be done. . >> it's a system that needs reforming and we don't want to put more money and more people on a program that's not working, we want to reform medicaid. so what we're saying is, don't expand this program as dramatically as obamacare does. keep it like it is, increase its funding and send it to the sates so the states can fix this problem. >> ryan's interview was pre-taped and he had no campaign events today either. harris, back to you. >> harris: steve centanni tonight. thank you very much. president obama continuing his bus tour there, and spoke a short time ago to a crowd on palm beach as you heard, he
10:05 pm
hit governor romney on medicare reform, a hot topic in the sunshine state and travelling with the president, ed henry. is this a strategy now, trying to take the focus off of jobs and put it on health care? >> well, no doubt about it, harris. the president is still talking about jobs and realizes it's important to the american people, but the bottom line after friday's weak jobs report. what the president is trying to do about the campaign, less a referendum about him and make it a choice election about the future and medicare fits there in two ways, number one, you have a lot of senior citizens here in florida, obviously. they care a lot about medicare and they want to hear about both sides plan. and the president has a right target here in the ryan budget and suggests it will end medicare as we know it. here is what he had to say today. >> here is what you need to know, i have strengthened medicare, we've added years to the life of medicare.
10:06 pm
we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies and insurance companies, that weren't making people healthier. and the other side knows that. it's in their budget, all the savings that we achieved and now they're pretending somehow it affects the beneficiaries when they know it doesn't. we took that money going to the insurance companies, used part of it to-- to help lower prescription drug costs for seniors. and for medicare for seniors. we thought that was a good idea. and they may think it's a bad idea, but i don't. >> now, to try and bolster his case, the the president talked about the study that just came out, suggesting that under the romney-ryan plan, seniors would pay about $125,000 more in medicare costs if in fact their plan was implemented over the course of their retirement, harris. >> you know, ed, i was reading today that the president much of his argument was based on that study.
10:07 pm
i think we should tell people who did that study and what the credentials are, an interesting note. >> right. it's a study from harvard, david cutler, an economist there. a democrat. tied to the president helping to put together their plans and what not. the obama campaign pushback on that is while this version is democrat. it's still insighting facts about the romney ryan budget plan and believe inside the obama plan in order to develop the budget far, far down the road they will have to have big cuts to medicare. as you noted earlier, the republican ticket noting in order to pass the president's health care plan, 700 billion in cuts to medicare himself, harris. >> harris: the study by what some would describe as a left leaning group looking at a republican plan. before i let you go. there's a picture that popped up a short time ago, it was kind of odd and it looked like the president being hoisted into the air. what happened? >> i've never seen anything like this, an unscripted moment on tralt where, this is
10:08 pm
a pizza shop owner in the big apple pizza place here in florida. he had what the president described as big guns in terms of his biceps, in terms of a body builder and so excited to see the president and lifted him in the air. no secret service, but normally they would keep him back make sure the president doesn't get tossed around or tossed to the ground. the pizza shop owner says he's a republican and voted for the president in '08 and wants to vote for him again. he was so excited to see him, he decided to lift hup. he's probably not man. got a vote out of it. >> where was the secret service. >> in the pictures you don't see them. they have a judgment call, they do this on rope lines with the president's event and watch people who might grab on to the president and make a judgment whether or not the president's going to be hurt and need to intervene, in this case they may have and we weren't, you know, right there to see, they may have made that judgment call this was just an excited fan who wasn't going to hurt him and he didn't get hurt. >> somebody from the floor in
10:09 pm
the studio here, rough and tumble on the campaign trail. good to see you. >> a fox wildfire alert. from parts of idaho, fear it could spread into a main community. the police have been going door 0 door, a lot of ground to cover. 400 homes to clear out and get people away from the flames. more than 400 square miles are burning, west of an area called north fork, which is near the montana border and you see it there on the map. more details as we get them. >> right now, a major deadline fast approaching. in a showdown with the teacher's union and if a deal is not reached within hours, it could mean no classes for children in one of the nation's largest school district. details that could play out really in any community in the nation. also, is there a silver line'll.
10:10 pm
10:11 pm
10:12 pm
10:13 pm
>> the latest jobs numbers, disappoint to go say the least. only 96,000 created in august not nearly enough to get the economy back in gear and that's raising speculation on wall street that the federal reserve could step in as soon as this week with a new round of stimulus money to try to prop up the weak recovery. but, any new actions by the fed could be seen by some people as a political move, with the election now less than two months away. senior business correspondent and anchor of bulls and bears, brenda buttner takes a look. >> harris, friday's weak jobs report could put the work again. good news for your 401(k),
10:14 pm
wall street at multi-year highs, but this just as we learn that jobs market just isn't working. and what gives? the traders are betting the fed will. when the central bank meets this week it could consider a third bond buying binge called qe3 in washington. the translation, the banks will print more money to buy what could be hundreds of billions of bonds for mortgage debt. how? well, the aim is to lower long-term interest rates and stimulate more businesses and consumers to borrow and spend, jump starting the recovery. yet, this means the money printing presses go into high gear just as our national debt tops 16 trillion and there's plenty of disagreement about whether it will work anyway, with unemployment stubbornly above 8%, not clear past efforts have. plus, this kind of move by the fed could also take the the heat off politicians. in europe, only when interest rates hit dangerous highs does
10:15 pm
government finally get serious about cleaning up the debt mess. we'll know if, then perhaps when the fed gets on the job on thursday, back to you. >> brenda, thank you very much. a fight over taxpayer money with thousands of children caught in the middle and our nation's third largest school district, a vike in chicago schools could cause major disruptions, we're told. and tonight, still no deals between the chicago school district and the union there. set the deadline for midnight tonight and the top concerns and pay raises and job security. we're told some progress is made, if they don't get a deal done, the teachers say they'll strike tomorrow. this weekend we've already seen the unions getting ready setting up headquarters to give out picket signs and t-shirts in case they walk. it's the kids, the school district preparing for the worst case scenario, preparing for camp for students who have nowhere else to go. tropical storm leslie racing across the atlanta and not facted to hit the u.s. main land, but it does not mean it

10:20 pm
atlantic. battering bermuda. breathing a collective sigh of relief, leslie had been forecast to hit the island, most of the storm missed it. you can see the center of the storm pass east of bermuda and leslie is not a direct threat to the united states, but even so, we are not in its path. some people along the east coast can still feel its effects and we want to look at what that looks like. maria molina in the extreme weather center. who might see some of it. >> harris, good to see you. and people who live along coastal areas and also down into the mid atlantic and leslie is a very large system. and fortunately, though, it's not really strengthened significantly and it's just a tropical storm and we've had dry air and trying to work its way into the center of the system and very large, it spans almost 500 miles from one end to the other end of the storm and that's really why it's so difficult for leslie to continue to strengthen and like you

mentioned the storm stays to the east of bermuda from the warmth of the storm and dealing with tropical storm conditions throughout the day today and those conditions do begin to improve throughout the overnight hours as leslie continues to pull away from the storm-- from bermuda. right now, the maximum sustained winds moving to the north at about 14 miles per hour which is kind of slow for a storm this far out into open waters and far north in latitude and as we head into later, tuesday morning, that's when we're talking landfall across the maritimes of canada and could be looking at landfall, otherwise, harris, like we mention, we're not expecting any precipitation from leslie for the east coast, but dangerous conditions across the beaches will be possible with rip currents and also dangerous conditions for the boaters that may head out to open waters across the east coast. >> harris: as always, and the people heed the warnings and get curious and go out there. something that does effect the united states dead on. the drought situations. i want to ask you which states
10:22 pm
are feeling it, where we stand with that. >> we've actually had improvement along the coastal areas, across louisiana, isaac, and it dumped over 20 inches of rain and did pull us out across a drought of louisiana and southern portions. we're no longer in a drought across parts of southeastern louisiana and southwestern parts of alabama, take a look across parts of the plains, still in extremes to exceptional droughts and some of the worst categories and of course we're not looking monday through tuesday, harris, and as a matter of fact, very dry conditions are expected with an elevated fire danger and gusty winds and humidity. >> harris: makes it worse and a layer of main for them. hope it ends soon. thank you. a wounded warrior showing the world what he's made of. navy lieutenant bradley snyder was blinded in bomb blast in afghanistan last year and he's doing big things though. now, he's competing as a swimmer at the london

10:24 pm
>> he defused bombs for a navy seal team and protecting soldiers. following the accident he remained conscious as waited for medics to reach him to pick him up. recovered at walter reed army medical center and places more value than ever the words he repeated in the navy, honor, courage and commitment. >> you think those words don't mean anything until you really have to sit down and consider what they are. when you go through something like that, you have to appreciate learning those things early on as opposed to having to find it out along the way. >> he hopes his story inspires people with ability to do big things and sharing his stories tonight and harris, he's involved in rock climbing a and-- >> of course he is an achiever like that. >> superman. >> harris: great stuff. thank you very much. and he stood up to one of the world's most brutal regimes, even when it meant he could lose his life.

10:32 pm
focus for them is jobs and thousand to create many more of them. on friday, we learned more americans left the work force than found jobs in the month of august. t month ticked down from 8.3% to 8.1% and the government only counts people as unemployed if they're actively searching for a job. when they quit. they are part of that number. and voters are not the only ones paying attention to the disappointing numbers either and so are those on the race for the white house and their campaigns as you might imagine. peter doocy now from the news in washington. >> for every person who got a job last month, nearly four stopped looking for work. that's not a good direction, but some of the president's supporters say not to read too much into august alone. >> you never want to take one month's report. if you look over the last year, the unemployment rate is down a full percentage points and most that have is from people getting new jobs, and some of those jobs are at the heart of the president's pitch to voters in swing states. >> after a decade of decline, this country's actually

he was originally sentence today die, but the court reduced charges and let him go for time served. that pastor's story is receiving attention from all over the globe and the u.s. state department calling for his release. our loren green joins us now, how did it turn the corner so quickly? >> it's a surprise. there were reports that hinted that the iranian judges would level new charges, but within 24 hours, the pastor went from facing death to being a freeman. and converting from islam was reduced to only evangelizing. in the end though, international pressure was the key. millions of prayers, tweets, media, and plus the government of brazil, the u.s. and the u.n. all playing a role. >> what you had was the international outcry, so i think the iranian regime made the correct decision, letting him. go. they found him guilty and said
10:36 pm
his time served was sufficient and let him go home. >> now, he was born muslim, but says he never embraced the faith and as a teenager he became christian. >> you and i were talking off camera how he described, what i call hell on earth. curious, where does he go now? >> well, this is a big decision for him. because whether the state in iran and continuing with his pastorship at his congregation or flees for safety for the safety of his family, big decision. >> we have a very delegate period of time here, you have to be careful after the release of the cases, it was about five years ago, the similar case, an individual toward release and killed a few days later and that happened. here you've the got-- this has been a high profile case, i'm optimistic that this could represent a change of tone if we could continue. but remember that, because this is a high profile case. there are still a the lot of christians and minorities still languishing in iranian prisons, but the good thing about the release is that it's a good sign that these
10:37 pm
international pressures just kind of-- >> yeah, and he said he spent many days praying. >> absolutely. >> three years, lauren green, thank you so much. serious reports tonight of new violence, the government war planes reportedly bombing a residential area in alepo, and this is an area we have been watching. the strikes came hours after rebels took over a nearby army base, after a militant leader linked to al-qaeda was warning of deadly new attacks on syria and an attempt to topple the syrian president. the leading of the militant group condemns what he says calls against the government and sunni muslims. more than 20,000 citizens after they rose up against their government 18 months ago. >> across the border in jordan, one syrian refugee camp celebrating a wedding. a 23-year-old carper marrying his 20-year-old cousin in his ceremony, apparently included on riding on the soldiers. the couple met in their home
